Seminal award-winning actor Nicholas Cage is making a quick comeback in Hollywood, playing…himself. In the new movie, The unbearable weight of massive talent, Cage takes on the role of a lifetime playing “Nick Cage,” a fictionalized version of himself, returning to our screens and into our hearts.
Australian release date
This might be one of Cage’s best roles yet as he stars in the action-comedy film. The unbearable weight of massive talent, which is set to be released in Australian cinemas on April 22, 2022.
The cast and crew
In The unbearable weight of massive talent, Cage will appear as a fictionalized version of himself, playing a dissatisfied creative actor facing financial ruin named “Nick Cage.”
Cage said Weekly entertainment that he immediately felt a connection to the role, as the character works in the capricious industry of Hollywood, in which success comes back and forth.
“Feeling unfulfilled and dealing with the rejection that can happen so often in the small town of Hollywood.”
Initially, Cage was hesitant to accept the role, as he feared the character was a little too close to home.
“I wasn’t too excited about playing it myself, but when Tom sent me that script, Nicky kinda reminded me of Jerry Lewis’ Buddy Love in ‘The mad professor,'” he said.
“I’ve always admired what he did with this film. For me, Nicky steals the show.
The film will also star comedian Tiffany Haddish, famous for Girls trip and The kitchen, and Ike Barinholtz, known for The Mindy Project. Pedro Pascal, Sharon Horgan, Lily Sheen, Jacob Scipio, Neil Patrick Harris and Paco León also appear in the film.
The unbearable weight of massive talent is directed by Tom Gormican, who wrote the film alongside Kevin Etten, who is a film producer with Mike Nilton, Cage, Kristin Burr and Kevin Turen.
Gormican, who notably produced Phantom and This awesome moment, wrote the role with Cage in mind, but thought it was “a shot in the dark” for the film.
As mentioned earlier, Cage plays a bitter actor facing financial difficulties who is offered a million dollar offer to attend a billionaire super fan’s birthday party. However, things take a wild and unexpected turn when it is revealed that the dangerous superfan is actually a drug kingpin who forces Cage to reprise his most beloved on-screen characters to save himself and his relatives. With a career built for this exact moment, Cage must take on one of his toughest roles yet: himself.
Patrick Harris will appear as Cage’s manager and Haddish will play Vivian, a CIA agent who recruits the actor to help take down the drug lord.
